Slave to the Grind    Skid Row



A few notes first:

This is a pretty sick Skid Row song, not one of the best but
definately up there

Cock in hand I'm gonna tune my whole guitar down just for one song!
Besides,I think it's played in dropped D anyway 'cos I got a guitar magazine
with a big section on Skid Row and he said that he came up with the song by
putting his toe on the third fret, strumming and releasing and *** so I'm
going to type it up in dropped D. If there are any parts that sound
wrong then just e-mail me and tell me whereabouts it is and I'll fix it up.
Also, I know this might be a little hard to read, trying to cram two guitars
in to a small space but at least it's all there.

ENJOY THE TAB AND HAPPY GUITARING !!!
